Beverley underwent surgery to fix a microfracture and meniscus injury to his right knee and will miss the rest of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The LA Clippers will be without their all-defensive point guard Patrick Beverley for the rest of the season.
His timetable for a return is approximately nine months, which is near the end of August 2018. With Paul and Redick gone and Beverley and Serbian rookie Milos Teodosic injured, L.A.is down to Austin Rivers, Lou Williams and Sindavious Thornwell, none of whom makes for an ideal floor general. After trading Chris Paul to the Rockets and seeing J.J. Redick walk to Philly in free agency, the Clippers' backcourt was in desperate need of retooling.
The big man is now averaging 10.5 points, 13.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game on 66.1 percent shooting.

"It's a tough blow for the team, but it's worse for Patrick", coach Doc Rivers said before the Clippers' game in Atlanta. He was sidelined for five games because of knee soreness, but returned to the lineup to play 22 minutes against the Knicks.
The first month of the 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season has gone by, and while it is still quite too early to tell how the rankings will look like when the season ends, it is never too early to see potential trades that various teams may be looking to make.
As if the Los Angeles Clippers struggles could not get any worse. Nobody will be surprised when he comes back even stronger next year.
